Today was Jamie's first Lucia! The Swede and I took off early from work and waited outside in the cold with a mass of other parents at Jamie's preschool until all the sweet little Santas, gingerbread men, and Lucias came marching out, singing. Jamie and a few of the other littlest kids got wheeled out in strollers and looked a bit mystified by the whole scene, as I'm sure you can imagine. We could barely see him through the crowd and it took a while before he spotted us and when he did he became that kid started crying. Even so, it was one of the sweetest things I've ever seen.
